We want you to keep safe on the road, even more so when driving
conditions are bad including in the rain, snow or fog.
If it is wet, snowing, icy, foggy, or windy, slow down. Increase
your distance behind other vehicles. Make sure that there is enough
room between your car and the vehicle in front to allow you to stop
suddenly if you need to.
Make sure you are aware of what is happening around you. Check
your speedometer, rear vision and side mirrors frequently and look
well ahead to try to anticipate problems before they confront
When visibility is reduced, use dipped headlights. Don’t leave
your lights on full beam when approaching or following other
motorists. It dazzles other drivers and can cause them to be
distracted or even blinded, which is dangerous. For similar
reasons, only use fog lights when it is appropriate to do so.
